Two Hindus were injured when traders opened fire at them following a dispute over the land of a temple in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province, according to a media report on Saturday.
The dispute began after two traders encroached on the land of Aakharo Temple at Umerkot in Sindh while expanding their shop. The temple is located in the middle of Umerkot town and is believed to be 100 years old. It is spread over three acres and has 50 shops along its boundary walls.
Two traders, Zulfiqar Punjabi and his brother Hafeez Punjabi, began construction to expand their rented shop without seeking permission from the temple’s administration, The Express Tribune reported.
Seth Jhaman, an elder of the Hindu community, said,”They started the construction work last week but when we complained, the police stopped them.” Elders of the Muslim and Hindu communities mediated and contacted parliamentarian Nawab Yousaf Talpur for help.
When the traders resumed the construction, the Hindus went to talk to them yesterday. The traders then opened fire, injuring Rano, 23, and Mool Chan, 30. The two men were taken to a hospital in Hyderabad city in a serious condition.
The town of Umerkot shut down to protest the shooting and due fears of possible riots. Police said they had arrested a few men linked to traders. Superintendent of Police Munir Khuhro said a picket had been set up at the temple.
Parliamentarians Yousaf Talpur, Mahesh Malani and Kishan ChandParwani have contacted the Hindus and assured them of help. SethJhaman said some armed men were still inside the temple’s property.
Sindh province has a sizeable Hindu population.
Hindu Existence adds: Umarkot or Umer Kot, also known as Amar Kot, Omarkot and Omercote, (Sindhi: عمرڪوٽ ,Urdu: عمرکوٹ ) is town in the Umerkot District in Sindh, Pakistan. The city is well connected with the other large cities like Karachi, the provincial capital and Hyderabad.
Formerly known as Amarkot, it was the capital of Greater Sindh Province, including some parts of present Rajasthan state of India. It also became prominent during the time of the Mughals and during the British Raj. The Mughal king Akbar was born in Umerkot when his fatherHumayun fled from military defeat at the hands of Sher Shah Suri. Rana Prasad, a Hindu Sodha Rajput ruler of Amarkot, gave refuge to Humayun. Later the Mughal Emperor Akbar became the Shahenshah of Hind and was a popular figure with both Hindus and Muslims. Umerkot has many sites of historical significance such as Mughal emperor Akbar’s birthplace at Umarkot Fort on 14 October 1542 . Rana Chandra Singh (1931–2009) was the Rana of the former Amarkot jagir after 1947, and remained a member of National assembly many times and also a federal minister.
Having it strong legacy with Rajasthan and Mewari tradition, this city of Umarkot is now truning as a killing field of minority Hindus in Pakistan. Though Sindh is mostly Hindu populated province in Pakistan, the persecution cannot be checked due to state sponsored Islamic Terrorism in Pakistan throughout the regimes after partition of India. 80% Hindu Temple, Ashrams, Shrines, Akhada, Religious Institutions have already been captured be Muslims in Pakistan and Pakistan amounts only 2% Hindu population now a days against its 16% Hindu population in 1947, at the time of partition.
Sindh’s Hindus are now targeted with cruel consequences by fanatic Muslims.
